The Japanese electronics giant Nintendo (7203.
T) is using its 3-D health sensors to collect information about its users around the world.
The company says it is using the data to improve health and care systems and provide the most personalized experiences possible for customers.
Nintendo says it collected data about health, mood, sleep, sleep duration and stress levels for 10 million of its users.
The data was shared with doctors and other health care professionals, it says.
The details come as more than one million people around the globe have reported feeling sick, dizzy, or short of breath since May, the company says.
Some have reported they’ve developed a “pre-disease” condition or suffered a blood clot or a stroke, it said.
The Nintendo 3D Health sensors can detect a range of symptoms from fatigue, headaches, stomach pains, sore throats, and muscle spasms.
The system can be used to measure heart rate, blood pressure, respiration, blood sugar, and more.
